Dawgs grab a big district win

Friday night was a big night for Clinton County football at Bulldog Field, with the Dawgs showing they aren’t afraid of a storm.

After some lightning rolled through the area with a thunderstorm while Clinton County was on the field against Metcalfe County, the game was halted for about an hour. When things cleared, the Dawgs went about the business of putting a win in the books.

Dispatching the Hornets in style, Clinton County picked up the 35-0 win for the school’s first district competition victory in a long, long time. In fact, I’m not sure myself when the last time Clinton County earned a win in district play and I haven’t talked to anyone else who knows for sure. Answers out there?

Up next, the Bulldogs take it back on the road again for a game Friday night against the Dragons of Green County up in nearby Greensburg.

The Dragons will be looking to pick up its first win of the season, bringing a 0-6 record to the field for the game against Clinton County.

Playing in the same 3rd District as our Bulldogs, the Dragons have only gone up against one common opponent as Clinton County, that being last week’s 29-6 loss to Monroe County, a team that also defeated our Dawgs by a score of 28-14.

Kickoff for Friday night’s game in Greensburg is set for 7:00 p.m.

Clinton County will be on the road the following week, traveling to Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee on October 11, before winding out the season with a trio of home contests that should make the local fans happy about getting off the road.

The Dawgs will end up on Bulldog Field taking on Bracken County (October 18), Edmonson County (October 25) and Jackson County (November 1).

Golf season winds down

After several matches were canceled due to heat index issues, and with several other conflicts on my own afternoon calendar, I was finally able to get to the golf course when the team was actually competing.

Sadly, my first time this season was the last time for the Golf Dawgs and Lady Golf Dawgs in regular season play.

I was pleased at two things during the outing last Tuesday afternoon. The Clinton County performance by both squads, and the number of high school players on the course that day.

Clinton County Lady Golf Dawgs were in a two-way match with York Institute and the Golf Dawgs were in a four-way match against York, Adair County and Cumberland County.

Clinton County picked up wins across the board in both girls’ and boys’ play.


In the meantime – let’s take it outside for a few months!
